Cargo Ship Loses Containers in Heavy Seas

Monday, December 08, 2003
The container ship Seaboard Voyager lost four of its containers approximately 18 miles north of Puerto de Tanamo, Cuba, Wednesday 2:18 p.m. Coast Guard Marine Safety Office Miami received the report from the ship's master at 11:30 a.m. yesterday that Seaboard Voyager encountered rough seas and bad weather off the Cuban coast and four containers became loose. The Coast Guard instructed the master to anchor the ship off the coast of Miami so safety inspectors could make sure the ship was safe to enter the Port of Miami. After an initial safety inspection of the containers onboard, it was decided by inspectors that Seaboard Voyager was safe to enter the port. Upon entrance into the Port of Miami, Coast Guard inspectors checked the ships manifest and confirmed four containers had fallen overboard. Upon further inspection, locks that hold containers to the ship were broken sometime during the voyage. The Coast Guard has issued a safety broadcast to mariners concerning the containers. The containers are believed to be 15 miles east of Punta Miasi, Cuba.
